Title VII Program

Title VII is a federally funded program through the Department of Education operating within the Office of Indian Education in Washington, D.C.   Funds go directly to local programs to meet academic, social, and cultural needs, as well as college and career planning. All students of Native American descent are eligible to participate whose tribe is recognized by the federal government.   Eligibility does not consider income level.   Procedures for enrolling your school-age child as a recipient of the program begin with the completion of a Title VII Student Eligibility Certification Form (506), which may be obtained at any Poteau school office. This form must be approved by the federal program office prior to services.
